on the trail today. obama is en route to a rally in wisconsin, but earlier today in denver supporters saw the obama we hoped to see last night. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. he said that he doesn't even know that there's such laws that encourage outsourcing, never heard of them. he said if it's true, he must need a new accountant. we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney, because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time. >> that guy's a winner. mitt romney joining paul ryan this evening in my home state of virginia, but which mitt will show up? the mitt who won the debate by putting the president on the defensive, spoke directly to voters and there was a moment or two of humor. will we see the same mitt on the trail for the past 16 months. you be the judge. here he is stopping by a colorado cpac meeting before leaving denver. >> last night i thought was a great fuopportunity for the american people to see two different visi
are on the road in denver, colorado. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney squared off in denver wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the
have gone wrong here. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust-- >> cenk: was that attack--there are a million things that went wrong. that's not why president obama lost over all but was that a mistake to go that late into denver. >> people do get altitude sickness, even sometimes at a mile high, but i think it was reflective of a bigger problem. president obama was being the president. he doesn't have to spend an entire day or day in denver. 's the president. if you watched him last night that's what he behaved like. a guy who for four years has gone unchallenged at least in the same room with anyone. his demeanor, his answers from exactly what you saw during presidential press conference over the last few years. that's the way he responded to romney, to whom he barely acknowledged. he was acting like this was just you know, something that he didn't have to deign to do. that was a huge mistake. it will be a wake-up call to him. it's
. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust, i don't know. [ laughter ] >> what is wrong with him? >> somebody send al gore's resume to the weather channel, stat. >> really? can i finish my monologue? that guy lost more marbles than a kid in 1933. watching debate was like watching the titanic discuss the iceberg, sadly disturbing. the debate is what we get when we see both sides without the filter of the main stream media. obama has been in a protective bubble since day one, which hurt both the country and himself. once outside the bubble with no immune system, he got clobbered. he forgot how to try, how to think. he also seemed to forget where he was. he brought nothing to an everything fight n. this victory of substance over style, the veil is pierced. the people got a picture of the president without a veil. next time they should send an empty chair. >> how did that work for clip? >> he was right! >> you were the media advisor on that on
every contest and make a judgment. i am sure that we will make adjustments. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. recommendny did his debate prep in denver. when guto 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting. >> i don't know. >> he didn't lose because he didn't show up. he didn't lose because he didn't use the 47%. he didn't lose because of the altitude, like al gore's saying. he didn't lose because he didn't prep. he lost because his ideas don't cut it. there is nothing they could have done. not a thing. and they even now still do not what hit them last night. >> greta: as you might imagine, republicans are cautiously licking their chops, hoping after one debate that governor romney has reset his race. has he? dick morris, author of "here comes the black helicopter," here. >> good to be in richmond, where i am out campaigning. >> greta: you are campaigning. 67 million people watched last night's show. i suppose what really matters most of of all, how many were undecide last night
presidential debate scored minute by minute and it drove the consensus that obama was crushed. obama was devastated. you know what? this is such -- >> it wasn't -- >> you could see it in the spin room in denver. >> stop it. within seconds after the debate, it was around the networks. >> you know what? they were crying. >> let me tell you something. >> they were having melt downs. >> let me tell you two quick things. one is everybody in there was twittering and -- >> now you're hanging out with bob twittering. >> no, no. tweet, whatever. the second thing to say is it wasn't so much the right, and there were people on the romney side trying to push it. it was the left. it was the left that went crazy on obama! they wanted a grudge match, a cage match. they wanted -- >> that's why even the obama campaign thinks they lost. >> yeah, that's the problem. >> when they come out tend with the spinners, it was all romney people. >> who knew that preparation with joy bearrest would have been a bad idea? spending all that time on the couch. obama had such a rough night that sandra fluke called hi
it to the president in the denver duel. the obama camp charged the truth got trampled in the process. >> la night i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very different visions for the country. and -- (applause) -- and i think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. i said the president's vision is trickle-down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: romney's reception at the event was reinforced by instant polling that he won last night's encounter by more than 2-1. but at an obama rally in denver, the president charged romney had repeatedly misrepresented his own positions on jobs and taxes. >> so you see the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for last year. (cheers and applause) governor romney may dance around his positions but if you want to be president, you yes to american
get high up in the rocky mountains, could it be the altitude. >> obama areiched in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet. >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust. >> that's interesting. i don't know . >> brian: it makes a lot of sense. >> steve: there is such a thing. >> gretchen: we agree with it? >> brian: if you are playing the broncos that is an issue. but just talking? did anybody wipe the lens in the cameras. >> gretchen: what else is on the set agreeing with him. >> brian: he owns the company. sounds good, boss. >> steve: over the last 24 hours, the reason that the president was so subdued. they decided he was going to play it safe . rope the dope and let the clock run out . stay above the fray . it turns out the other guy bested him and that according to the polls. >> brian: how much to lower the temperature in here. it is 110. >> gretchen: i went like this. >> brian: you turned up the heat. >> gretchen: i turned it up from 69 to 66. >> brian: 10 bucks gets me to 6
in the numbers too. steven, you were on hand for for obama today, what did they say? >> they took 12 hours to figure out what the spin was because it was not ready last night. they were late getting to the spin room last night in denver. they settled on a line which was mitt romney might have looked good and sounded good, but everything said was false. he was lying one after another after another. what was interesting on the conference calls, they didn't give much supporting evidence. it's one thing to make the claim, but another to support it in a way to convince the people you're listening to. president obama might be able to do that on the campaign trail talking to partisan democratic audiences, but not much on the conference call today suggesting he's ready to support that claim. gerri: all spin going on today. al gore had this to stay "obama arrived in denver 2 p.m. before the debate started, and romney did the debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet with a few hours to adjust -- >> i'm prepared for al gore at altitude for the presidential debate in 1996, and the issue is not
at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls moving in their directions. one of the top priorities tonight is to maintain that trajectory. the romney campaign
than a year now. now it's time to debate face-to-face. a live report from denver as president obama and governor romney prepare to square off. >>> and a rough day for hewlett-packard. what ceo meg whitman said that scared investors. >>> and good afternoon. i'm jeff ranieri in the nbc bay area weather center. this time yesterday we had 107 in gilroy. today temperatures starting to drop. a lot more comfortable outside, with anywhere from 78 in san jose to 86 in livermore. we're going to talk more about this temperature trend and some big-time changes for your weekend. even our next chance of showers in just a few minutes. >>> 50 minutes and counting. the first debate of the 2012 race for the white house starts at the top of the hour. tonight's theme domestic policy. the 90-minute debate will be divided into six timed segments of approximately 15 minutes each. president obama will get the first question, and mitt romney will get the last word. for the very latest, let's check in with nbc's steve handelsman live at the university of denver. good evening, steve. >> reporter: janelle, tha
in the campaign, all eyes are on denver, where president obama and mitt romney are getting set for their first debate tonight. good evening, i'm judy woodruff. >> ifill: and i'm gwen ifill. on the "newshour" tonight, we get some pre-game analysis from mark shields and david brooks. >> woodruff: then, from loose seats to smoky cabins and labor woes, we get the latest on troubles at american airlines. >> ifill: jeffrey brown updates the story of the butler accused of stealing documents from the pope and leaking them to the press. >> woodruff: hari sreenivasan travels to the electorally important swing state of iowa where the polls opened last week. >> a recent des moines register poll found less than 2% of iowa voters were undecided, which means the campaigns could benefit from locking in votes early. >> ifill: margaret warner examines a genetic breakthrough that could allow doctors to diagnose and treat seriously ill infants sooner. >> woodruff: and we close by returning to a conversation with tonight's debate moderator, our own jim lehrer about his book on past presidential debates. that's all
in just a matter of hours. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. president obama will take off for denver in just a few hours. i'm told he'll have a little bit of down time with the first lady before the debate. he'll also do a walk through of the venue. here's how it's going to work. president obama will be given the first question. mitt romney will have the final word tonight. the debate will be broken up into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. it will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why
obama and at that point, romney would be running out of big-moment opportunities to turn this thing around. that's what i'm looking for. here with us now in denver, we have howard fineman, the "huffington post" media group. said he is the buffalo bob of our show. >> now i'm don meredith because don meredith always used to say on monday night football, when the game was nearly over, woe start singing. ♪ the party's over but not there yet. >> bring you back to sing at some point, heward. before we do that, we have another task and i thought howard would be the perfect guy to lead this off. basically, we want to look ahead to this debate tonight and all for a moment, assume the role of moderator, jim lehrer, pbs, a moderating this thing tonight. let just go around right now, we will start with you, howard. you got jim lehrer's seat, the two questions in front of you -- two candidates right in front of you. what is the one question that you think would you most like to see jim lehrer ask one of these candidates tonight? >> i would focus on mitt romney because this really is it for mit

trail. after last night's debate, president obama holding a campaign rally denver. vice president biden campaigning in iowa. mitt romney and his campaign vice president paul ryan are campaigning together today in virginia. while in denver for last night's debate, we talked with some students about their views on the election. >> the issue for me has to do with women's rights. and rights for all women, not just wealthy women. and the supreme court will go a long way to make sure that those are secured for generations to come. >> i was interested in the economy. >> the biggest issue for me is getting a job after i'm done for school. i pay $55,000 a year to come here. i need a job to pay for that. >> it's important to me to make sure i am able to get a job. >> there are many issues we need to focus on. >> video-based social media service similar to a tweet. last night's debate is the most tweeted event in history, topping this year's republican and democratic conventions. a look at last night's debate. the debate was held at the university of denver. it was spoke focusing on domestic polic
with the president and he's live in denver. a very different sounding barack obama back in front of the teleprompter this morning. >> big time. he had the teleprompter here. he was hitting mitt romney here as you just showed. senior advisers to the president like david axelrod having conference calls this morning, doing the morning shows incision the president did not lose the debate last night. this rally here tells a much different story, not just the president's words but i spoke to several obama voters here behind me earlier who told me that they believe mitt romney showed them something they had not seen last night. these are obama voters. two of them told me that they thought mitt romney showed gravatas, that he could be on the same stage with the president. nonetheless to be clear these obama voters said they were still likely to be with the president but they saw something new from mitt romney, a spark if you will. from the president what i saw just a moment ago was a president who seemed to realize that he had missed opportunities last night, that time after time when mitt romney punched hi
, folks i'm megyn kelly. a look back now in denver, colorado where a fired up barack obama has just finished this rally. he was going off on governor romney in that campaign appearance, and we heard a very different-sounding barack obama at this rally. it comes after the president's top campaign advisers, hour after hour hit the air waves clearly trying to reframe the presidential's debate performs answer. political observers said he looked irritated, annoyed and was unhappy to be on the stage while mitt romney sounded presidential. thousand they try to make the argument that governor romney only won last night because he lied. here is the president moments ago. >> we also had our first debate last night. when i got onto the stage i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [laughter] >> but it couldn't have been mitt romney, because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts in pay for the wealthy. he said the fellow last night on stage said he didn't know anything about that. megyn: he said he was
appearance by romney since the debate in denver last night. obama had two -- one in denver at sloan lake park. the other was in madison, wisconsin. that was a big crowd there, too, the biggest of the obama campaign so far. the nielsen ratings agency says the audience last night for the debate was the biggest since 1992. 62.7 million tuned into the debate. if you did not get to see it, what we have done on our debate hub, we are looking at the candidates getting set for an interview with sean hannity. this will be on the hannity program on fox later. on the debate hub you can see the speech broken down into portions and clips from last night posing debate. the candidates are backstage. we will go back live to fishersville, virginia once the rally gets under way. we will have to live view here on c-span. [no audio] we will wait to take you back to fishersville, virginia with mitt romney and paul ryan. they are doing an interview. i want to show you some of the reaction from this morning's washington journal and from last night. >> we asked c-span viewers what they thought of the first president
states. and that's why i want your vote. >> that was president obama? sloanes lake park outside denver, colorado. governor rendell there are not a few people on the democratic side of the aisle that wish that you could have transposed the president obama we just saw on to the president obama we saw last night. >> interestingly, president obama said that wasn't really mitt romney that debated last because totally different positions. well, that really couldn't have been president obama on that stage last night because this is the president obama that we know that's proud of what he does, believes with all of his heart that the tax plan that governor romney's pushing will destroy this country. none of that passion. none of the zingers. none of the come-backers were there. >> a combination of passion, upbeat, edge at the end. that issue of fairness, that's where i would have liked to see obama finish the debate last night, really get behind that. and it's the perfect issue for him against romney. it speaks to all of these other things out there without him trying to take it on directly, w
object the campaign trail with president obama. he campaigned yesterday in denver in wisconsin and really fired up and really calling mitt romney on what he saw smas of his inconsistencies during the debate. the problem is 67 million-plus people watched that debate. that was really the place where he needed to call mitt romney out. i guarantee you not that many people saw his comments from yesterday. even close to the dab. >> nowhere near that amount. brianna keilar. let me ask you a quick question about the jobs numbers. we are expecting those at 8:30. it might be the most watched job numbers before the election, i would guess. >> that's right. we are watching them and remember they also come out that friday before the election. so we will be watching that as well. this is number two and then number one will be right before the election. we are not expecting this to be good for president obama. these aren't expected to be great jobs numbers. it is unclear how good they would be for mitt romney if they are significantly worse than expected, then obviously that's going to play to mitt romn
lothian is in denver. morning, dan. mr. obama can't be feeling very good this morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the second half of the debate. take a listen. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years for fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> for 18 months, he has been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he is saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: now, carol, remember, ther
presidential debate from the universe her -- university of denver. two hours from now, president barack obama will face his republican challenger, former met -- massachusetts governor mitt romney on campus. 80 million people are expected to watch on tv and online in this first debate between the two man. we will be here for the next two hours to set the stage, discussing the debate, logistics, and policies of the evening. we will involve you in this discussion. here is how you can take part. iphone, democrats can dial -- by phone, democrats can dial. republicans and independents -- the numbers on the screen. if you will tweet about the debate, use the hash tag #cspan2012. we may use your comments on air. our question for this program -- what would you have if you had the chance to ask? this is a domestic policy debate. you can send our thoughts on the question you would most like to ask on our facebook page. facebook.com/cspan. the moderator is jim lehrer of pbs. the debate is structured into a series of 15 minute questions, many focusing on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the
of the university of denver. 8:00 p.m. eastern, president obama and mitt romney will face off in their first of three debates. we have an all star panel tonight. former congressman rick lazio and former clinton white house aide keith boykin. and herman cain tells us what it's like to debate kevin madden. it's all about leadership and leadership means taking control of the conversation. that's just my advice. in an anemic overall economy, we've seen some positives in recent days. the ism services surprised on the up side today, 15 million car sales yesterday and of course stocks have been rising since a year ago today. the s&p is up 32%. so things can't be all that bad. how will the investor class vote in 34 days? but first up, both mitt romney and president obama are in their respective hotel rooms now. they're making final preparations for the big debate and cnbc's own john harwood joins us live with the details. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. two hours from that debate we've gotten a reminder in the last 24 hours with a slew of polls of how high the stakes are in this debate.
: i'm going to say something controversial here. obama arrived in denver at 2:00 pm today. just a few hours before the debates started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> john: exactly. >> al gore: and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> jennifer: that's interesting. [overlapping speakers] >> cenk: one quick thing here. i just came from l.a. the same day. i drank two cups of coffee. >> john: the first time i ever did stand up in denver i had the same effect. it makes you drawn and off. the president has an off night. >> jennifer: but tell me a good answer. >> john: i agree with jenks i think he explained voucherism better than ever. >> eliot: i think the substance of that transwould read well in a transcript -- >> jennifer: give me something good. come on eliot. >> eliot: he spoke to his wife with no passion. [ laughter ] >> eliot: that was the only moment when i saw in his eyes the energy and caring that got him elected president -- >> jennifer: what about when he quoted lincoln? >> eliot: it sounded old. >> cenk:
that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate loss. our cnn/orc poll of viewers, people who actually watched the debate, finds that 67% think mitt romney was the clear winner while only 25% think president obama won. let's get some more now from our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was
breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." >> first from fox at 1:00 o'clock in denver, live from the university of denver. if hours, president and the governor will go head to head in their first debate, talking about the economy, health care, the role of government and governing. president obama looking to solidify his lead in the swing states that could decide the election. the president has been taking aim at governor romney's secretly recorded comments about the 47 percent of americans who do not pay income taxes. those comments will likely comment up tonight. for governor romney, the debate presents a chance to gain momentum by hitting the president where some consider him vulnerable, on jobs and the sluggish economy. the romney campaign has new ammunition from vice president biden and comments yesterday about the middle class. >> how can they justify raising taxes on the middle class which has been buried the last four years. >> an obama advisor defended the vice president saying it is the republican policies that hurt the middle class in the first place. the romney c
's going on in denver right now with a president obama rally scheduled for 12:05. coming up in roughly an hour. 12:05 eastern time. we'll keep an eye on that. >>> we want to bring in our debate post-game power, joy reed, we have anita dunn, former white house communications director, and john baybender who served on rick santorum's presidential campaign. gang, good to have you here. julian, you were saying yesterday don't try too hard for that moment and don't get too snippy, come armed with specifics. what do you think now? president obama was not listening to that. what happened? >> well, you know what? i think ed schultz made a lot of good points but you look at his exchange with the obama campaign manager. he said everybody knows about the 47%. i think the biggest problem for the obama campaign last night was they had a presumption that everybody knows the facts so they don't have to relitigate the facts in a debate. the problem is you have to come into every debate as if nobody knows anything because what mitt romney was able to do was to present a completely different person and
